Today I went kayaking and I did two weeks of grocery shopping (it's what we do). Whew to both! It was my first time kayaking this year, and at first I didn't know if I would be able to get far, my arms were kinda saying, "what are you doing to me?!" Keeping in mind, of course, that I'm only four days in to exercising more than just walking dogs and at work. heh
After we kayaked, I used hand cleaner on my hands. Ever since then I've been sneezing like crazy! Who'd have thought that would cause such a reaction! I took antihistamine soon after we got home, and I used a nasal spray about an hour ago. It's a little better, but I'm still not done sneezing. Hopefully this allergy headache and the nose trouble will be done with by morning.
Good night, and have a super Saturday, all!

I got dishes, laundry and some cupboard (2) organizing done today.
My husband did eat one section of the mints I spoke of the other day, and the rest of them did go home with my thin friend last night, lol.
It was Monday that I started eating right again and getting regular exercise, and I must say that I feel so positive. It's like my brain doesn't want to let me feel easily down. That's a great change for the better!
I also am determined to not show a tracker until Monday, simply because I know for a fact that I always lose a good bit of weight in the first week I'm back on track- so I'd rather go from the week after that before accepting any "congratulations".
It has been a lovely day. Some of my laundry spent time outdoors! :)
I'm glad the rain has left us for a few days again. More can be done outside.
I hope you had a terrific Thursday!

It's been a pretty good day. It feels weird to be on vacation from working with students. Hopefully it'll only be a couple more weeks. In the meantime, I am determined that I will enjoy it this time around, and will get things done too. Today I got a good amount of exercise- had fun dancing to some songs on Spotify as part of that. :) I worked on cleaning the fridge, though it could use some more attention than I gave it (I think I need to look at expiration dates...). Got some veggies and fruit cut and/or bagged up. Tried a chocolate pudding made with chia seeds. I'm not certain that my nickel allergy is okay with the seeds, but I'm trying them again anyway. I know I have broken out on my arms a little today, and have been a bit itchy, but it might not be them....seems like it has been before, but we'll see.
Chlorophyll is good for revitalizing a thyroid, so I'm using that for the second time this week. It's a mint flavored water when you add it to the 8 oz of water they suggest.
I did dejunk a couple areas today, and did some dusting and put some things away that had been sitting in an area unattended. So it feels and looks better to have gotten these bits of things done.
I chose good things to eat today too. Lots of fruits and veggies mainly. :)
I just had a friend over and we watched a movie on Netflix called Blink of an Eye. We enjoyed it.
Tomorrow's another day to redeem well. :)

My daughter came over and we planted a garden this morning. It took us two hours. I know it's kind of late, but we had to wait until my husband could get a tiller borrowed and used and then find a time when the weather would cooperate and she could come over.
I tried three new recipes today. They were good. One was for a smoothie, another for a frozen fruit bar, and another was a pudding made with chia seeds. Those things thicken up nicely.
I finished a book my son had recommended, and caught up on some tv on huluplus.
This evening my daughter and I went for a walk for just over an hour. We don't usually get together so much, so this was nice today!
I'm very happy with all the exercise and with eating such healthy things today. Although...the nutrition tracker says I should have eaten at least 2500ish calories, according to how much exercise I've had today, and I've had less then 1900, but I'm not going to worry about that at all. :)
